Hampton Beach Seafood Festival Lobster Roll Eating Contest set for Saturday

The 6th annual Lobster Roll Eating Contest will take place this Saturday during the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival. Jude David, chairwoman of the Seafood Festival, inspired the creation of this non-standard eating contest. “(It was) really just creating an event within the festival that would draw people and be exciting,” David said. “You look at Coney Island and what they did with the hot dog competition, so we thought why not lobster rolls.” Ironically enough, it was a hot dog eating contest held in early August that qualified contenders for the lobster roll round. The contest begins at 2 p.m. at the Seashell Stage and will feature 12 competitors. The top three winners will each be awarded a cash prize. Read the rest here 08:42
